Thanks for this update.  This fixed the issue of the persistent menu bar
appearing on my HighSierra frontend.
For anyone else with older hardware, I have an Early 2009 Mini (GeForce
9400m 256MB), but I can still get decent playback with this build using
VideoToolbox(decode only) and "low quality" deinterlacing.
WRT the metadata grabber, how does one set this up?  The setup page in the
frontend currently lists no available options.  Does one need to download
the python scripts or copy them from a linux installation and place them in
a specific directory on the Mac frontend?
